THE WORKHORSE OF FIELD RECORDERS

The H2n Handy Recorder is the only portable recording device to come with five built-in microphones and four different recording modes: X/Y, Mid-Side, 2-channel surround and 4-channel surround. Other advanced features include automatic gain control and onboard MS decoding, plus effects like compression, limiting and low cut filtering. You can even use the H2n as a multi-purpose USB microphone!  

Using the H2n

With its multiple microphones and recording modes, the H2n can handle just about every kind of application. Here are just a few ways it can be used:

  • Live recording of concerts and rehearsals, in either stereo or surround sound  
  • Location videography—the H2n gives you plenty of options in postproduction 
  • Creating audio for YouTube videos   
  • Generating lasting audio documents of important events 
  • As a USB microphone providing input to recording software

Five microphones, four ways of recording

The H2n offers not one, not two, but five built-in microphones. Two of them are arranged as an X/Y pair, while the other three are configured in an MS ("Mid-Side") pattern. They can be used separately for X/Y or MS stereo recording, or combined to create stunning 2- or 4-channel surround sound. 

Mid-Side for variable stereo width

Mid-Side recording is an incredible technique that allows you to actually adjust the width of the stereo image after it has been recorded, while maintaining perfect mono compatibility, making it especially useful for film, video and television projects.

The three microphone elements in the H2n MS mic are set directly on top of one another. One faces forward and the other two face to the side.
